Patient Information

Patient Information

Dr Paviour will discuss important aspects of your condition and treatment in clinic and this information will, if you wish, be sent to the referring clinician (often your GP) and you will also receive a copy. If you would rather you or your GP are not copied in on any letters, then please advise Dr Paviour or his practice manager.

Often, it can be difficult to cover in detail everything you may need to know during a consultation, but Dr Paviour will cover the most important aspects of a diagnosis and treatment. Further helpful information can be found the following sections of this site and if you think that there are conditions or questions that are not covered, then please let Dr Paviour know.

Headaches

Headache is the most common neurological disorder by far.

As an isolated symptom, it is very rarely caused by tumours or a ‘serious’ underlying disease, but nevertheless it is often still a significant problem for the patient.

Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the most common neurodegenerative cause of parkinsonism (approximately 80% of cases of parkinsonism)

As a rule, PD begins between the ages of 40 and 70 years, with peak age onset in the seventh decade.

Epilepsy and Seizures

Electrical activity is happening in our brain all the time. A seizure happens when there is a sudden burst of intense electrical activity in the brain. In this information this intense electrical activity is called ‘epileptic activity’.

Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease affecting nerves in the brain and spinal cord, causing problems with muscle movement, balance and vision.

Each nerve fibre in the brain and spinal cord is surrounded by a layer of myelin, which protects the nerve and helps electrical signals travel fast and effectively.

In MS, the myelin becomes damaged, MS is a demyelinating inflammatory disorder.
